I'm hoping to make my first 100 this month. Still have 29 to go. I made about 300 last month and then I just petered out the last week and still haven't jumped back from that.

What number are you up to now? I think this will take me to 99

Edit, 98

Adam ends each drawing thread with the results.

In this case, he posted the results in post #178 on Nov 2

Just curious.... do posts after 100 carry over to next month or is there a reset?
Nope each month stands alone and if you win one month you can not win again,,,,,,but your post allows someone to reply thereby increasing their post count.

I was under the impression the photo competition for each month was announced once the votes were in, the suggestion being around the 15th. I know about the 10 & 100 post comps but not the photo one and it would be interesting to see the winning picture.

I believe that @Adamís hand-audit included some posts that are not included in the automatic count, but Iím not which oneís are added in.

Edit: apparently, this post has not added to my count

hmm

I wonder if the slow down in posting in this particular thread was because of the realization that posts here don't count toward a member's personal posts for the raffles ?

[ something I was aware of back in the beginning of this thread ]

________________________

it's getting down to the end, only 30 days in November remember

personally my posts are a little down but it does look like a large number of members will qualify for the general and grand prize raffles

credit goes to them, Adam and all others who helped come up with these contests.

My posts are down from last month too. I only recently got my first 100 of the month last week. And I've only made 8 posts since. I attribute it to burn out from last month and not having "recovered" from it.

Well I got to 80. Posted photos spent serious time thinking about actual real posts, posted a couple pics I'm pretty proud of, and then got busy(a deer and holiday projects) and somehow "failed" :P Least I got to represent.
